If I put together a visual Kei outfit and get a death note notebook and dye my hair blond would you consider that a good Misa Amane costume....? On a serious budget lol but I still want some sort of cosplay for a convention I'm going to.... plus it's my first convention so I want to go a subtle as I can, even though at first I didn't wanna lol. but my friends ducked out on cosplaying with me.... bummer:bigcry: so tell me what you think... thank ya:heart:

I can really only speak from my experience. When I first did Misa, I tried dying my hair blonde right before the con. It didn't really take and my hair was still quite red, although people still liked it because my outfit was well put together. I later got a wig for this costume.
I can't really judge it right now as I have no idea what pieces you plan to use. My Misa cosplay was pieced together from items I got at Hot Topic (except the corset, I can't remember where I got it.) I honestly get nothing but compliments on it.

(I'm putting a big "cosplay is only serious business if you want it to be, so wear whatever will make you happy and fits with your budget" disclaimer on this post.)
Dyeing your hair, especially blonde, might not be the best idea if you've never done it before. You could end up frying your hair or turning it a strange color. A professional dye job is safer, but those can get expensive. A wig might be your best bet.
If you decide to dye your hair and do it yourself, test it first! Don't do it the night before a con.
Also, you could definitely put together some of Misa's canon outfits without being too flashy or spending too much. Do you have a favorite one?
